Maharashtra farmer feeds his entire tomato crop to his cows

A Maharashtra farmer decided to feed his entire tomato harvest to his cows after his relentless efforts to secure fair returns for his crop left him with a mere Rs 4.5 per kilogram (€0.05) in Ahmednagar district. The farmer invested some Rs 200,000 (€2.200) into his two-acre tomato field but was confronted with very meager returns. Despite dedicating his efforts to cultivating these tomatoes, the market offered him no respite.

“The Central government’s price reduction for tomatoes has left us struggling even after 76 years of Independence. Farmers in this country continue to grapple with the challenge of securing fair prices for their hard-earned produce,” he lamented.
